However I do miss a couple of things...firstly the good old fashioned Aussie flyscreens.
this is what nearly every window sill looks like...aagh!
The other thing I miss is secondhand/antique shops, there are none in this town...although I do get my fix once a month with the red cross second hand clothing day and the odd market stall events...where there is always the slim chance of picking up something old. However the other day Olga, Ross, Henry and I went to Arkureyri for shopping and we always call in at the antique/secondhand shop there and this time I managed to score a little bargain...a bronze champlevé lamp....(similar to cloisonné)...
I have 3 Australian dizzy dames arriving next week, a friend and her two companions on nearly their last leg of 160 days around the world trip...really looking forward to them arriving.
